School Information

Welcome to Te Horo School

Te Horo school is a decile 9 school. The school teaches from year 1 (5 year olds) to year 8 (12 year olds). We operate as a whole school which we believe encourages the older children to take responsibility for the younger children.
Te Horo School is a wonderful country school set in an amazing rural area between Otaki and Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast. Our school is unique in the fact that it is close to Wellington, which is approximately one hours drive, yet is able to maintain all the traditions of a country school. We have events such as lamb and calf day which includes growing gardens as well, and we are very proud of our special ANZAC service that is held each year at school.

We are particularly fond of our environment which boasts two very large playing fields, two well equipped adventure playgrounds, sand pit, a native bush reserve, gardens and trees galore.

The school is situated approximately 1.5 kilometres from state highway 1. This view is looking south.
